Protecting Clients Rights in Matters of Implied Contract

In some cases, an implied contract between an employee and employer may exist.  An implied contract is a non-written contract that is based on a mutual understanding and expectations between two parties. An implied employment contract may be established in several ways.  Most often this contract is considered based on the following:

  • Number of years served
  • Performance based on positive evaluations, promotions, salary raises, bonuses
  • Existing company policies, written or oral, describing disciplinary and termination procedures

In certain circumstances, implied contracts can be enforced. Employers and employees are expected to abide by the terms of the implied or oral contract.  If an implied contract is established, an employer may not fire an at-will employee unless there is "good cause" for the termination.  Good cause is generally defined as having an honest and just reason for firing an employee, such as misconduct.
